Clemson, SC – Clemson lefthander Daniel Moskos (Alta Loma, CA) pitched the final 2.1 innings in Team USA’s 18-9 victory over Chinese Taipei in the finals of the International University Sports Federation World Championship in Havana, Cuba on Tuesday night. With the win, Team USA caputured its second-straight FISU title.

Moskos allowed two hits, one unearned run, and no walks with four strikeouts. He also had a single and scored a run in his only at-bat of the summer for Team USA. The team finished its summer campaign with a 28-2-1 record, as the 91.9-percent winning mark was the best-ever by a USA Baseball collegiate team. The tournament win was also the first-ever for a USA Baseball National Team in Cuba.

Moskos, a rising junior at Clemson, pitched in a team-high 18 games during the summer. In 21.0 innings pitched, he allowed just eight hits, two earned runs (0.86 ERA), and four walks with 35 strikeouts, meaning he had an 8.8 strikeout-to-walk ratio and a 15.0 strikeouts per nine innings pitched mark. Moskos added a team-best six saves as the primary closer as well.

At Clemson, Moskos had a 5-5 record and 2.52 ERA in 33 relief appearances during the 2006 season to help the Tigers to a College World Series appearance and an ACC title. He also had 10 saves, tied for third-most in a season in Clemson history. In 53.2 innings pitched, he allowed just 44 hits, 21 walks, and one home run with 54 strikeouts.
